Bo Bunny Liberty Paper

Had to run out and get these papers for a layout I did for the last Scrapper Standing contest at Memorable Seasons. I wanted to focus on July 4th memories. At the cottage we fish, swim, go to town for the flea market and books sale. My family all comes over and we end the day watching the fireworks over the lake.

Me Then

Found this OLD photo of me. I started with my cut outs lined up but then merged them all together so this is my take on the sketch

June Helmar Challenge

I might have gone over the top on this one! This is the sketch posted on the Helmar blog

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was a hand held mirror. So that got my wheels to turning.  A quick stop at the Dollar Tree provided me with two wooden little princess mirrors. I removed the "mirror",  covered the wood with paper and then put the "mirror back on. The journaling circle was created on vellum with a very washed out photo of me that was taken in a mirror. It reads - I see myself looking at me. I see who I am, who I want to be. I see challenges I want to try. I see the desire to grow and improve. Mirror, mirror help me to achieve my goals and dreams. Let me believe in myself . Help me to see the very best in me.

Here is a close up of some of the details.

I hope you like it! Thanks for a great challenge.

The Big Day

You prepare your kids for so many things - the first day of school, graduation from college and now the first day of work at a REAL job! It only took 4 weeks after graduating from college for Rob to find a job doing network administration which is just what he wanted. I had to capture some of his morning before he headed out! So proud of you!

He {Hearts} the Lake

Bandit was so happy to be at the lake last weekend. He loves to swim and tires himself out. This is a pic of him as he was drying out.

My son is so lucky to have such a great big sister. She is always there to offer guidance and advice.

I am Back but will be Leaving:):)
